Amidst the coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions, photographers are finding alternative ways for taking photos. One of them includes taking family photos on their front porches while maintain a necessary distance. However, Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) urges people to stop doing it, noting that the virus can only move if they move.
We’ve seen some incredible cases when people accidentally found forgotten and rare photos (this one’s probably my favorite). And something like this happened to a Missouri architect Brian Bononi. He was working in a closed photo studio on Kansas City when he found a pile of 167 portraits that never got delivered to clients. So, he gave himself a mission: find the people in these photos and reunite them with prints that were never delivered to them.
Michael Herb is a commercial and editorial photographer from the States who in his own words says “I’ve had an intense, deep-seated passion for art for as long as I can remember. I can find inspiration in everything and my imagination is endless. I challenge myself on every occasion. I’m always learning, always improving, and always striving for more. Where there is life, there is inspiration and where there is inspiration, there is a spark of creativity. It is an endless cycle that I enjoy every minute of.”[Read More…]
I’m going to break with tradition a bit, for I usually am not one to talk about celebrities that I keep in touch with from photoshoots. Some of this comes out of professional courtesy, and another part of it is that I am a bit of a private person However, a current project and fun day in the studio has made for some new images and behind the scenes video that I think you will all enjoy. So with that, allow me to talk about the shenanigans that take place when I share the studio with my photographer friend (that plays football), Larry Fitzgerald.
Dads love their daughters and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for them. And Josh Rossi, dad and photographer, combined the love for his daughter with the passion for photography. He made his three-year-old daughter’s dream come true with his photographic skills, lots of Photoshop and even more love. He turned his daughter Nellee into Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Maybe you remember him from a few months ago, when he turned his daughter into Wonder Woman.
Josh traveled all over Europe to take the perfect shots. Later on, he did a photo shoot with Nellee and brought all the images together. It took a lot of time, work and patience, but it gave truly fantastic results.
If you want to try something different this Halloween, how about trying some light painting portraits with your kids?
Its easier than you think, and I’ll show you how its done in this article.
No matter how cheap I am, I always bear in mind that sometimes you get what you pay for. However, a recent bride doesn’t feel that way about a £40 (~$60 USD) camera she purchased to use on her honeymoon.
Kirsty Fuller, a bride from the UK, wanted to be able to have photos of her honeymoon to cherish for years to come. With this in mind, she purchased an 18 megapixel Polaroid IE826 from Argos to take along with her to Brazil. Upon loading the photos onto a computer at the end of the trip, she was ‘heartbroken’ to find that almost all of them were blurry very low quality. But, it’s when she went to return the allegedly defective camera that the real fun began.
This past weekend I had the extreme pleasure* of attending my daughter’s second (she and I agree last) dance recital.
In what can only be described as a three and a half hour long gong show featuring 56 acts – non stop – it was still an important accomplishment for her, so of course it was up to me to at least snap a few obligatory family photos.
It turned into to interesting lesson on natural light photography and photographing kids that I thought I’d share.
One of the things that I love about creating stock photography is that it gives me an incentive to create very artistic and polished photographs of my own family.
I have been shooting for Stocksy for nearly a year now, and a sizable portion of my portfolio are photos of family members – to steal a line from Chase Jarvis:
“The best model is the one you have with you”
When I look back on my portfolio, I see a whole year of family photos that are completely different than the snapshots I would normally take.
In this article, I am going to share a few of the stories behind some of my favorite family photos.
